Why do I need this?
As organisations and vendors embrace cloud services, the actual footprint increases, along with the intricacies and inter-system dependencies. What starts out as a simple migration from on-premise virtual machines, quickly turns into a complex multi-cloud and hybrid sprawl. Cloud system administration is not the same as on-premise.
To get the best out of cloud, staff will either need to be re-trained or allow third parties such as Fordway to manage their multi-cloud environments. The additional necessity to ensure security, governance and compliance, whilst controlling costs, provide a real problem for traditional IT teams. The tools do exist, but to get the best out of their operation and management, needs the requisite experience and capabilities.
Organisations end up basing their cloud usage on ‘case by case, per application’ basis as this is dictated by each vendor. No two vendors use cloud services in exactly the same way, leading to security and integration concerns. The actual enterprise adoption of multi-cloud services in 2021, was 93%, with the average use by a mid-size organisation of 2.6 public and 2.7 private clouds.
Fordway’s Azure Assessment service will perform an end-to-end review of an organisation’s entire IT environment, including multi-cloud, hybrid and on-premise.
We’ll check on all the major components, including Compute, Storage, Databases, Security and Authentication, Networking, Monitoring, Web Services and Mobile Services.
This service will review the current Azure environment, plus other cloud & hybrid elements. It will provide recommendations on how to unlock the full potential of what capabilities exist. Fordway will use their 30 years of experience in delivering tailored, optimised
